Reservoir Monitoring Update

By January 10, 2019

TRWD staff continues to monitor conditions in the TRWD reservoir watersheds 24 hours a day.  The National Weather Service (NWS) and the River Forecast Center are calling for rainfall, with the focus for heavier rainfall Friday into Saturday morning.  The forecast has improved for the TRWD area since yesterday as the heavier rain is expected to be to the northeast, however there is still 1/2 to 1 inch of rain in the forecast, and with saturated soil conditions runoff is still expected, see RFC guidance below.   Currently all TRWD reservoirs are above conservation level, and discharges are being made to return the pools to their conservation level.

Current lake levels can be viewed on the TRWD Home Page.  The blog will be updated periodically with additional information.  Please check back.
